3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light amber with a big frothy head. Aromas of malty caramel, piney hops, and slight toffee. Flavors of light pine hops, light caramel, and just a hint of hay/grain. Lightly sweet and mildly bitter. Leaves just a light corn/grain/bitter aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour, not the greatest looking. Strong piney hop scent. Odd taste, haven’t had anything quite like it before, kind of like a sweet IPA, mild on both counts, with a weird aftertaste I can’t quite place. Is that from the absence of gluten? I have no idea. I’m craving a bagel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange red color with thin white lacing. Citrus and slight earthy hop aroma. Clean palate with some fresh hop notes. Thinner palate with nice citrus appeal. For a de-glutenized beer I can really stand behind this pale ale. It might lack a little body but with no grain basis this is understandable. If I was unable to consume delicious bread I would certainly be able to turn my palate onto this ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pretty clear amber with a fairly thick and fluffy, if not too persistent, off-white head. Aroma is not strong, but invites with malty and fruity notes. Malty flavor has a strong woody hoppy note and a fruity undertone, just a little sweetness. Smooth texture has average thickness and little fizz. For a gluten free beer, not too bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Didn't know what to expect with this...but except for one little unexplained weird little post initial flavor this is a pretty solid pale ale period...decent aroma ...balanced leaning toward the hop side of things...pretty deep orange color...not bad..it does lack that crisp freshness that leaves you wanting more...omission was worth it especially for those non-gluts among us

Bottle, I feel they should make this more clear this is a gluten free beer, it could be the account for the mediocre beer, I wasnt big on this one, it has a nice hoppy aroma, it has a strange mouth feel, a ruf finish, overall it is some what drinkable, likely wouldnt have again

12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice copper with a one inch beige head. Taste is of malt, caramel, grass and hops. Similar aroma. Has a mostly full body with a bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and rather surprising that it is gluten free.
